    Measuring reach/drop, yes, it's basically 3 cm each way for the bars I have. Other bars will differ, sometimes dramatically. My original round bend bars were considered shallow drop bars, medium at...

    Yes, compact bar, sorry for not being clear.

    In this picture the red bike has compact bars, the black the regular crit bend bars (round, considered shallow drop back in the day). I have the 14 cm...

    Although I'm sure someone will disagree with me it's virtually impossible to develop your jump, meaning your acceleration rate. I suppose you could work on it with plyometrics and stuff but it'll put...

    The assumption with the stem length bit is that the contact points remain consistent. Any problems with the body's position is a separate one, meaning fit isn't the issue (since the different bikes...

    Not sure if it's too late or what but the shorter top tube affects weight distribution. It's not about reach, it's about how much weight you have on the front wheel. If you get a shorter stem your...

    I see mikey's point of view but I also see yours. I happened to order custom frames in colors that worked for the team at the time. I asked for orange when our kit had a lot of orange, then I got...

    Best wishes to your son. I can't imagine. Our "he's only sick" was up most of the night, fever broke at 4 AM. The Missus was holding him and suddenly he was soaked with sweat. Today he was an...

    Was debating racing at Limerock tomorrow. Tiny pre-reg fields (14 in M40, 16 in Cat 3s), thundershowers expected (last year was horrendous), 3+ hours in the car, plus 2-3 hours at the race. Even that...

    I never made it to the crit in a normal stage race (TT-RR-Crit). I always got eliminated in the RR. I'd typically place in the last 5-10 in the TT.

    I don't know why promoters don't put the crit...

    My crank/bb, with its current 3-5w reading while the cassette is still freewheeling, would have wiped you out. The original install, which would run about 6w at normal rpms, really would have been...

    Heh you're welcome.

    As far as the tires go I think of wide tired bikes (meaning anything over 23c) like SUVs. Maybe not the bike to race in a crit (at least not for me) but a lot of fun to ride....

    As far as shifting goes electronic rear derailleurs need the cassette ramps just like mechanical. I guess they can push the derailleur down as well, whereas mechanical relies on a spring (and it's...

    Will 25s fit? I wonder if it's worth the effort? I should reduce vibrations significantly and allow you to reduce pressure safely.
